The show has reached a new level of scary. I mean, shit... this was a new high. I can't remember the last time a TV show or movie elevated my heart rate the way this did.
I think what makes the disaster that much more hard to believe is that Jack himself is buckling under the pressure. Basically everyone is starting to fold under the intense stress that the situation is causing them. It's not all flowers and parades this season, it's balls to the wall, end of the world type shit.
